EXPERIENCE: Boracay and #AtiAtihan2014 Part 1 of 2!
|Inside Batangas City Port|
Another item on my Bucket List has been crossed out after having a fun weekend in Boracay last January 17, 2014. Being part of my top 3 must see destination, I am very happy to finally see the beautiful paradise called Boracay Island. (Click to see my top 3 picks last year.)

It has been a 9 hour ship ride from Batangas City Port to Caticlan Jetty Port. Upon alighting from the ship, we headed to Caticlan port to pay for our boat ticket, environmental and terminal fees for a 15-25 minute ride to Boracay Island. The sea was not calmed since there's a Low Pressure Area in some parts of Visayas region. After alighting from the boat, we took a tricycle heading to Boracay Cottage located at Station 1, Boracay.

We go back to Boracay Cottage to check if Peppe and Thalia already arrived. We found Peppe in the room. He just traveled from Tagbiliran in Bohol before going to Boracay.

We decided to have some lunch before heading to the beach for swimming. We ended up having a buffet lunch at La Carmela de Boracay.

|Peppe loves to makes faces during picture taking. :)|
|Along the way, a Korean approached us and ask things like, "where are you from?, "who are you with?", "are you a solo traveler?", etc. He ended up going with us as he don't have any company. His name is Silva.|

Boracay is known for its white and fine sand, amazing sunset and kind people. Boracay sunset is by far, the most beautiful sunset I've seen. It's like a magic show! The sun sets so fast that it looks like it's running. After the sun sets, the sky starts to change it's color. From yellow to gold, from gold to orange, from orange to red. The sky was set on fire with clouds complementing it.

After shots of Vodka and Rhum, we decided to head out and see what Boracay party place can offer. We ended up dancing to drum and lyre to DJ mix at Summer Place.
